Hello and thank you once again for joining us down at the crossroads for some music, magick, and Paganism. Where witches gather for the sabbath, offerings are made, pacts are signed for musical fame and we cross paths with today’s most influential Pagans, occultists, and deep thinkers. I am your bewitching, bald headed, host Chris Orapello and tonight Tara and I speak with author, artist, blogger, dancer, and designer Laura Tempest Zakroff about her new book Sigil Witchery: A Witch’s Guide to Crafting Magick Symbols, from Llewellyn. During our discussion we touched upon the relationship between art and magick, mark making, sigil creation, right and left brain thinking, the use of symbols in society and magick, and more. Laura was a fun guest as always and we were delighted to have her back on the show.
Sigils are magical symbols that are designed to influence ourselves and the world around us. Tracing through history, art, and culture, this illustrated book offers an innovative and fresh approach to sigil magick that is accessible and intuitive. You don’t need a degree in art or magick to make effective sigils!
Learn how to manifest your will through your very own designs. Explore traditional and modern meanings of shapes, symbols, numbers, letters, and colors, while receiving guid- ance on how to add personal meaning to your marks. Sigil Witchery includes methods of application, tips for choosing materials, and important considerations for both temporary and permanent sigils. This book helps you improve your drawing techniques, use sample exercises to challenge yourself, and gain deeper metaphysical insight and inspiration—all to guide you to develop your own powerful sigil magick. – Sigil Witchery, back cover
